Throw a stick of softened butter into a mixing bowl...
Add sugar and brown sugar...
And a half cup of the most amazing food in the world: peanut butter.
Mix those up until they are nice and fluffy!
SIDE NOTE: Have you met my boyfriend? No? Well he is shiny and red and completes me in every way.
Next, add an egg and vanilla and mix again.
And throw in flour, baking soda AND baking powder.
Tricky, I know.
Oh man, these are warm and buttery and perfect.
I dare you to eat only one.
I. DARE. YOU.
Of course you could leave them just like this. There is absolutely nothing wrong with plain peanut butter cookies. Nothing at all.
However, there is also nothing wrong with dipping these beauties into dark chocolate and sprinkling them with chopped peanuts.
NOTHING. AT. ALL.
Take a handful of peanuts and give them a quick chop.
Grab your favorite bag of chocolate chips and melt.
And dip and sprinkle.
Dip and sprinkle. Dip and sprinkle. Dip and sprinkle.
